Electric vehicle sales are heavily influenced by state and federal policies, and those in the industry need to understand these policies and their implications for business strategy.
One key policy are the vehicle emission rules adopted by California's Air Resources Board, which envision approximately 15.4% of new car sales to be electric by 2025 and 87% of all vehicles zero-emission by 2050. Oregon and several other states have adopted rules that follow California's lead. Another key potential policy driver is the Low Carbon Fuel Standard. California's Low Carbon Fuel Standard has been challenged in court, and Oregon's has not yet been implemented, but both could drive significant increases in electric vehicle sales.
This event will explore both of these policy drivers, their current status in Oregon and elsewhere, and their likely impact on the electric vehicle industry in coming years.
Andy Ginsburg, Administrator of the Air Quality Divison for the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, will discuss the status and future implementation of the Clean Car Standards and Low Carbon Fuel Standard in Oregon.
Jana Gastellum, Program Director for the Oregon Environmental Council, will provide an environmental advocacy perspective on the policies.
David Patterson with Mitsubishi Motors R&D of America will provide an industry perspective on these policies and their potential impacts on electric vehicle sales.
